       There have been so many changes in customer expectations and with service delivery, which is why we have created a completely new series of qualifications and certifications. The Customer Service Certification Pathway has been created to support students in their aim to gain relevant qualifications that practically apply to the ever-changing world of customer services.

There is an examined component at this level. The exam consists of 50 multiple choice questions, related to the subjects you have chosen.
